OMG I cannot describe the feeling of flying to Kalapatthar and seeing the glorious Mount Everest !!! The trip started off with the uncertainty of the weather but we finally departed a bit later! The pilot of our aircraft MR Prakash was brilliant!! After we left Kathmandu and ascended over the valley I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face! The experience of seeing us fly into Lukla and the take off again and then the landing at Pheriche was just surreal.We were split into a group of two and got around 15-20 minutes at Pheriche ….the feeling of being in the lap of the Himalayan mountains was just magical Then we flew to Kalapattar our pilot pointed out everything to us …the peaks …the Kumbhu ice falls ..the camps…then we landed at Kalapatthar…the view of Everest ,Nuptse were incredible….we just were so happy!!!we missed out on landing at Everest hotel as it started snowing but we can’t complain…we flew back safely and happy ….pl do this it is a dream come true !!A huge thanks!!!

I loved this tour! I was a last minute and Mukti and his team were very accommodating to find a spot for me and super nice and helpful. The views were just fantastic and it was more than worth the money as you are surrounding by stunning views for hours.

The weather didn't cooperate and I was denied the beautiful sunrise view of the mountains. Bhaktapur is a fascinating study in ancient Hindu and Newari culture. Despite the devastation of the 2015 earthquake, it is a beautiful place.

A great time with many impressions, landscapes, good food, an excellent guide Ramesh ... if only the rubbish were not everywhere. I had to get used to that. I was a solo traveler and would not want to miss this experience

Very well organized.Guide allways helped my family to find a clean restroom/toilet.Could recommend this tour!
